of a fiscal cliff and they are still on vacation. >> let's go to mike in texas, on our line for republicans. >> i agree with the first guy. i wish they would have a little backbone and force obama and reid into not giving in to them. they need to set a budget and stick with a budget, and what they are trying to do is they want more money so they can increase the debt again, and they are about to run this country, as far as i am content. host: out the you think this will end up? caller: i hope boehner holds to his guns. i think the million-dollar deal is a good deal where anybody making over a million dollars pace a little bit more money, but i do not buy that $250 deal. host: that's good to marry in florida. c-span.e on caller: i believe the average american should not have to pay taxes. caller: you are going to need to turn down your tv, ok? caller: i do not have been on. it could be somebody else playing district. -- playing this trick. host: we will stay in florida and go to venice. did you see what minority whip hoyer had to say? caller: yes, i did, and being a democrat i go along with

ceiling fiasco of 2011, but after the summer we were taken to the brink of a fiscal cliff, one we are about to see it it can come in to thinking part of the house republican leadership was maybe her tea party freshman will go home, get yelled at by constituents and they'll realize this compromise is not such a bad thing. the opposite occurred. he went home and people go to town halls tend to be the activists of their party and those people tend to be tea party and everyone screaming, why did you accept a deal? you said you would not under any circumstances read the debt ceiling. at best it's been mixed messages and the great likelihood it will be a while before we see moderation. >> is this further look at the freshman from his second term members of congress and save if only we could control them. is it the case of leadership feels it is so fond of saying what those who wish to obstruct or is the leadership secretly happy that the freshmen are getting the blame for the credit for doing the dirty work that they probably politically would not do as leaders of the house? >> the lead
